Rockstar Shelves Red Dead Redemption, GTA 4 Remasters to Focus on GTA 6


Rockstar Games reportedly shelved planned remakes, including Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4, to focus on the upcoming GTA 6. This is after Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was released to negative reviews from critics and fans alike,

According to a prominent leaker and reported by Kotaku. Both Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto 4 remasters were “on the table a few years ago, but Rockstar chose not to proceed with the projects in mind.”

However, according to Kotaku, these projects weren’t fully canceled and could possibly see a return to development after GTA 6 releases.

Tez attributed the cancellation of these remakes to the especially poor reception of last year’s GTA Trilogy remaster, which received a 5 in IGN’s review for its sloppy redesign and “straight-up broken” mechanics.

The studio is now focusing on GTA 6, which was confirmed to be in development earlier this year. Though it’s already been announced, fans shouldn’t expect a wave of news about the title for a while, as Rockstar plans to reveal details about the game on its own schedule. It’s possible that GTA 6 won’t come out until 2024 or 2025, and even then, it’ll reportedly have a smaller size with plans for post-launch updates to help eliminate crunch.
